The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
